I got a New Job Today

So I got a new job today. No don't get all excited that I'm leaving the house. I can do this new job from the comfort of my home. I'm the newest Tooth Fairy!!!! Peyton lost her first tooth today. This child has been working on this tooth for almost two months now. I've got Gold Sacagawea coins ready and waiting. This morning it was very loose and I tried to pull it but she said it hurt too much. She wanted to call Grandma and Papa so she told them all about it. I was on the phone with them when she started hollering that she had pulled it. It was very exciting and they got to hear it as it happened. She then called Brian and Nana and I had to hurry her out of the door. However, not before I got these shots.

Landree kept trying to pull her teeth all day. Brian came home all excited to see the new tooth which I found in the trashcan. Peyton and I didn't throw it away so that leaves Landree. I don't know if she threw it because she was jealous or because we were cleaning today.

Last time my mom was here she made a tooth pillow for Peyton. Needless to say Peyton was excited to get to finally use it today. (ignore all the flash photography- I hate using a flash)

She kept the hairbow in because it matched the pillow- so girly. Brian got Landree ready for bed and she literally darted in for a picture and darted right back out. She is not to be ignored.

I love this picture. You can see that Nana used the same fabric from the blanket she made for Peyton's bed almost 3 years ago when I was pregnant with Landree.

This is the picture that finally made me cry.
I realized that the smile I have been looking at for over 4 years (she had 16 teeth on her first birthday) is gone. I know she is growing up and I will accept that but today I get to mourn a little for my baby. Once you start loosing your baby teeth you are a big kid. On the way home we heard a Shania Twain song that came out when she was a newborn. It is a romantic song but I remember it coming on almost every morning after Brian would leave for work and I would sing it to her just for these lyrics,

"And there ain't no way--I'm lettin' you go now,
And there ain't no way--and there ain't not how
I'll never see that day
'Cause I'm keeping you forever and for always
We will be together all of our day
Wanna wake up everymorning to your sweet face--always"

When Peyton heard it, she asked me if this was the song that I used to sing to her. I told her yes and then she said that when she had children that she was going to sing it to her daughter. Ugh- I wasn't ready for that.

So forget all this sappiness- here is the picture of a girl who has had enough. This is when I need the scrapbooking shirt that says, "My Kids Think I'm the Papparazi."Ignore the blue fingernails. Instead of doing art every week, Peyton's school instead takes the last two days of the month and only does art. She came in covered in blue today. I asked her what she did for art. She told me they painted Vincent Van Gogh's Star painting.

Yep thats it- Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night- Kindergarten. Whatever happened to noodle necklaces and picture frames?
